Ditto. This whole issue could be prevented by favoring a data-oriented approach. In other words, don’t mix behavior (functions) and state (primitive properties).

So simply represent the data coming back as interface of json data and move faster. :)

I agree. I would prefer to not create model classes that have methods for synchronizing with a server like the TypeScript TodoItem class in this example.

However, code like this is still seen in the wild, and I wanted a simple example. In fact, it's very common practice albeit not a good one to use ORMs on the server-side.

Your comments brings up some very valid points for discussion of code quality and software architecture.
